Backyard Springtime Nature in New Jersey.

Birds of the Day — Brown-headed Cowbird, Blue Jay, Black Vulture, and Eastern Phoebe. One chick in the Eastern Phoebe nest fledged. I think it is an Eastern Phoebe rather than a Brown-headed Cowbird. The beak is sharper, and the breast is yellow rather stripped brown and white. Hope this one survives after all the trouble its parents went through feeding the previous two Brown-headed Cowbird chicks.

Lots of Poppies. Even after the thunderstorm last night again knocked the old flowers down, many new ones opened this morning. Spring flowers of the day — Red, Pink, and Oriental Poppies. Foxglove, Spiderwort, Evening Primrose, Daisy, Sweet William, Lance-leaf Coreopsis, and Tulip Tree.
